Hyde Name Origins.

The name "HYDE" is derived from the hide, a measure of land for taxation purposes, taken to be that area of land necessary to support a peasant family. In later times it was taken to be equivalent to 120 acres .

After the demolition of Fernbank Farm

Fernbank Farm or "Raymonds" Farm (after Raymond Martin who owned it) was demolished around ten years ago. 

I, for one, was sad to see it go even though it was in a bad state of repair for the last few years of its life.
It was great to see Raymonds prize winning chickens running free around the farmyard and all the wild cats who lived in harmony with Raymond.


The row of houses on the right hand side are on Stockport Road.


A sad site that the pile of bricks were all that remained of Fernbank Farm.


Fernbank Court was built in its place by Loxley Homes..
The houses were opened for occupation in 2004.
